Tony Dural - Founder, Chief Visionary & President

Tony Dural aka Coach TD - Passionate! Authentic! Enjoyable!

Dedicated father of six outstanding children, 3 boys and 3 girls, the oldest being 18 and the youngest age 8.

I have been involved with football in some way, form, or fashion for over 28 years. Playing throughout middle and high school, I received multiple partial scholarships but decided that the Marine Corps was the better option. While over seas, I played middle linebacker in Germany’s Semi-Pro League for the Bamberg Bears. Coaching is my passion! Holding titles from Assistant Coach to President throughout the years. I intend to soon pursue a high school coaching job, which I feel is my natural calling.

Academics is key and I take it very seriously; attending schools for the academically gifted, where I was nominated and received multiple scholastic awards. After my military career ended with Honorable Discharge, I enrolled into college and earned a BA in Human Resources and a Master’s in Business Administration (MBA). I am also currently pursuing my Doctorate from Hampton University in Business Administration.

Even though I don’t have children of my own, every Spartan is my child. As Vice President, I will ensure each Spartan athlete can excel academically, socially and professionally. It is my duty to afford the youth in our community as many opportunities to create a positive environment.

I find peace in making others happy and I intend to keep a open mind and give a helping hand wherever I can. Together we will be motivated to achieve great results and be successful.

Jerome James - Football Commissioner

Coach Jerome aka Big Dog – Hard! Firm! Fair!

Growing up in Pittsburg, PA I learned to play football, baseball and run track. As a child I played quarterback, running back and defensive back. These are also positions I played in college before I enlisted into the Marine Corps.

As a parent of 4, I started off as a sideline coach and over the years graduated to assistant coach then as Deputy Commissioner for Dale City Sports Club for 2 years.

I want to be able to give back to the community that helped guide my kids in a positive direction. I believe COMMUNITY opens doors for kids, helps them build lifelong friends, teaches them to respect authority and how to be productive human beings in society.
